SMS # 23: Matthew 5:9

9 Blessed are the peacemakers,
for they will be called children of God.

 

We are blessed, not because of the “blessings” we receive, but rather because of how things make us closer to God or more like God. Just as God initiated peace between Him and man,  we are to initiate and maintain peace with fellow men, as long as it depends on us.

May you have a “blessed” and peaceful week ahead.
